[Heard on the alt.sport.spurs newsgroup by poster wink-wink, and
reposted here for your Sunday giggling pleasure. For the record, I've
heard better. Heard the one about the rabbi, the priest, and the two
red-heads entering a bar?]
The year is 2007 and little bluenose Duncan is talking to his bluenose
Dad. SON "Dad, my mates in school told me that Liverpool won the
European Cup for the 5th time in 2005 - are they right dad?
DAD "Yes son, it's true, but they were dead lucky son, all the way
through the tournament"
SON "Why dad?"
DAD "Well in the group stages ..."
SON "What dad, did they have a team from Azerbaijan, Israel, and
Ireland in their group?"
DAD "Well no, they had Monaco, Deportivo la Coruna, and Olympiakos"
SON "Well they still sound like 3 easy teams to me dad"
DAD "Actually Monaco reached the final the year before, Olympiakos had
won their league 7 times out of the previous 8 seasons, and Deportivo
finished above the galacticos of Real Madrid in their league".
SON "Jeez dad, that sounds like quite a difficult group then".
DAD "yeh I suppose your right son, but they were still lucky - it took
mi**** shot by Gerrard against Olympiakos to get through".
SON "oh is that the goal were your hero Andy Gray goes berserk
shouting "you beauty, you beauty, what a hit son, what a hit!!!!"
DAD "yes son it is"
SON "oh ok. Well what happened in the last 16 dad, who did they draw?"
DAD "Bayer Leverkusen"
SON "Bayer who?"
DAD "Exactly son, but they had beaten Real Madrid 3-0 at home, and won
their group that included Dinamo Kiev and Roma too."
SON "****** hell dad, they sound good".
DAD "yes, I suppose you're right son"
SON "so did they win on away goals or something"
DAD "errrrr, no, they won both legs 3-1 each"
SON "oh - well who next then dad"
SON "How ********* did they get past them Dad?"
DAD "Well they did - they won 2-1 at home, and cruised to a 0-0 away
draw without Juve having hardly any chances".
SON "were Juve sh#t at that time - had all their decent players gone
DAD "well actually they still had players like Del Piero, Nedved,
Ibrahimovic, Thuram, and Buffon in the side. And they won Serie A a
few weeks later."
[Note: A Spurs fan replied, "No they didnt! And they didn't win it the
year before either!"...Heh]
SON "wow, they beat the Italian champions elect - which **** easy team
did they get in the semi then?"
SON "Chelsea - ********** - what a **** easy draw - they've won
nothing, Everton have won more than them".
DAD "well that season they won the Premiership and League Cup but the
Red ***** didn't let them score in 180 minutes of football"
SON "Jesus Christ - so Liverpool beat the English Champions elect too"
DAD "yes son, they ****** well did".
SON "so after all that I suppose all the good teams had been knocked
DAD "not quite son, AC Milan awaited them in the final"
SON "no way - aren't they the 2nd most successful team in the
DAD "yes son they are"
SON "so were Liverpool lucky because Milan had all their good players
out with injuries"
DAD "no - they had Shevchenko, Crespo, Maldini, Nesta, Cafu, Kaka,
Stam, Dida, Gattuso, Pirlo, and Seedorf".
SON "your 'avin a laff"
DAD "it gets worse son, Milan were cruising 3-0 up at half-time".
SON "what happened, did they have 3 men sent off in the second half -
how did Liverpool get back into the game?"
DAD "no, Milan had no men sent off, the Red ***** scored 3 goals in 6
SON "against the best defence in Europe"
DAD "yes!!!, against the best defence in Europe"
SON "so what happened next - extra time?"
DAD "yes son, and Dudek made the luckiest save ever to stop a
Shevchenko shot from a yard"
SON "why was it lucky dad - did it hit him on the arse, nose, shoulder
DAD "no son, his hand"
SON "well aren't goalies meant to save shots with their hands"
DAD "yeah but that's besides the point"
SON "then what"
SON "English teams are crap at penalties"
DAD "not this time they weren't - they only missed one. And that's how
Liverpool became the luckiest team to win the European Cup".
SON "but I bet when they brought the cup home there was hardly anyone
to watch as all Liverpool fans live anywhere but Liverpool you say.
How many was there, 5,,000 or so?"
DAD "1 million people lined the streets".
SON "so let's get this straight dad - Liverpool had 3 good teams in
their group, they then knocked out a team who had beaten Real Madrid
3-0, they then knocked out the future Serie A champions, then knocked
out the future Premiership champions, before coming back from 3-0 down
to beat the 2nd most successful club in Europe. And then the whole
population of Liverpool came out to welcome them home!!!!
DAD "that about sums it up son"
DAD "yes son"
SON "can I have a Liverpool shirt for my birthday next week, and can
you stop calling me Duncan - I'm Stevie from now on"
